Roasted Fall Harvest Soup

Brings together the richness of sweet butternut squash with fresh and slightly tart flavour of apples for a delicious soup.

Slow roasted to caramelize the squash, and enhanced with traditional fall flavours of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, you might wonder if you aren’t eating dessert!  It truly smells that good, and it tastes even better.

One of the key differences between this and say, pumpkin pie, is the use of the fresh ginger, instead of powdered.  The fresh ginger brings a slight spice, with a touch of citrus to the soup.  This is what  sets it this Fall Harvest Soup apart from others you may have tried.

My family is split on soup, some love it, and others don’t, but I still like to make a big batch of soup every week, and for those of us who love it, we have it for snacks or amazing lunches.   Soups reheat so well and I often just round it out at lunch time with a salad.

This particular soup is pureed; and I really like the texture however if you find it too thick when you’re cooking it, that can easily be adjusted.   Simply add more stock, or a little water until the desired consistency is reached.

Is it Keto? Vegetarian?

By using coconut oil in this recipe, it is Keto friendly, and if you wish it can also be vegetarian by substituting the Chicken Broth with Vegetable Broth.   If you want to get super healthy and budget friendly make your own Vegetable Broth.  I do this often, and you can definitely taste the freshness in the homemade stock.

Serving Suggestions

  • Brie and Apple Bruschetta
  • Spinach Salad with Apples and Pecans
  • Biscuits

And last but not least, I like to serve this delicious Roasted Fall Harvest Soup in ceramic bowls, it adds to it charm, and I like my food to look as good as it tastes.
